The Full Review
"Zibibbo" is a Sicilian cultivar of Muscat of Alexandria, an ancient grape varietal found across the Mediterranean. It is particularly associated with the small island of Pantelleria, where it can be used to make sweet wines, or dry, floral wines like "Lighea". This bottling has a pale color and highly perfumed aromas of candied citrus and rose, with a hint of incense. Flavors include candied lemon and a hint of sea salt. It's light and fairly dry, but has lots of fruit flavors and a small bit of sweetness. If you're looking for a wine that captures the essence of the Sicilian coast, look no further. Try it if you like very aromatic wines like Gewürztraminer and crisp wines like Sauvignon Blanc.
